The exactly right selection of model and size In
corsets is more vital to your perfect poise and comfort
than you can imagine. You should have the garments fit
ted to your figure. Come in and try the different mod

the selection of both model and size. Bear in mind
that the smaDness oi size will not necessarily make
the lines of your figure perfect and also that tightness
will more quickly than anything else take away from
you that graceful appearance of ease and graceful car
riage which wins the admiration of everyone.
